Lomography Babylon 13 - 35mm Film
According to Lomography: "This romantic new addition to the B&W Kino Film Family delicately captures life’s most emotive moments in glamorous grayscale. Bare feet rest on crumpled sheets, conversations long forgotten echo in empty rooms, clasped hands and honest faces resonate as they recall the memories that move them most and blushing lovers weave their windswept tales of devotion."
Sounds like a great option for the creative photographer who's comfortable in manual mode and experimenting outside the common film speeds!
As with most slow films, Babylon can render fantastic detail with fine grain. Ideal for atmospheric portraits, still-life studies or studio photography.

Starting in 1992 with some Viennese students falling in love with the aesthetic of a particular Soviet camera (the iconic LC-A) - they founded a movement and a company that would introduce a new generation to the joys of plastic cameras and experiemental film. Periodically innovating new cameras for existing formats - and sometimes bringing back formats specially for their cameras! - they are vibrant and creative

Being low ISO this isn't the easiest film to use. I managed to find a camera which metered down to ISO 12. The photos came out very clear, with plenty of detail, but they were a little bit flat, and didnt pop quite as much as I expected.
It's an interesting device. Adox has a very fine grain; this one?.. I'm not sure. Low exposure latitude?..
I guess my point is: try it. Very unusual. Not easy to use. But I'm interested in learning how to wield it.

Maybe with more usage I may find subjects better suited to this film and get some results more in line with what I expect.
